Simon Benita

 

Prof. Simon Benita of the School of Pharmacy at the Faculty of Medicine developed Cationorm, an eye-drop nanoemulsion for the treatment of dry eyes. This emulsion consists of positively-charged oil nanodroplets and functions similarly to the physiological tear-making mechanism which lubricates the eyes and keeps them moist. Cationorm is manufactured by Novagali Pharma (France), which is owned by Santen Pharmaceuticals (Japan).

More information about Cationorm is available in this video.
